Mirko Slomka’s contract as coach of bottom-placed German club Hamburg has been terminated after just seven months.

Slomka, 47, replaced former Netherlands coach Bert van Maarwijk in February this year when Hamburg were battling relegation for the first time in their history.

He eventually guided the ‘Dinosaurs’ to a 16th-place Bundesliga finish, earning the right to feature in the relegation play-offs where they defeated SpVgg Greuther Fürth on away goals.

But a poor start to this season sealed Slomka’s fate after claiming just a point from three games culminating in Sunday’s 2-0 loss to his former club Hannover.

Slomka is the fifth coach to leave the Imtech Arena since Martin Jol departed for Ajax in 2009. They host champions Bayern Munich this weekend.
